January 15, 2018  |  42 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

WORST DAY EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry we just can’t find words to comment on that…
Here’s just a link to the article of Independent

Dolores once said in an interview that she couldn’t picture herself live over 50.
Unfortunately she was SO DAMN RIGHT.

Our deepest condolences go to Her Family, first.
Thinking also of the boys, the beautiful Cranberries team, and all our fellow fans.

WE LOVE YOU DOLORES
MAY YOU REST IN PEACE

Noel Hogan on stage yesterday for charity event

January 13, 2018  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Noel Hogan

Noel Hogan was one of the surprise special guests yesterday at “Metis Ireland”, an event in aid of 2 local charities, Pieta House and Limerick Suicide Watch. Concert held in Limerick at Dolan’s Warehouse, the famous local pub, so yes Noel kinda played home.

After Dolores last month, it’s was Noel’s turn to appear on stage to play 2 Cranberries songs “Zombie” and “Linger”.

Singer Emma Langford posted on Facebook a video of “Zombie” with the following comment:

It was *just a bit* nerve-wracking singing Zombie with its actual writer playing guitar right behind me…
Kind of incredible though?
Na… Totally. Totally incredible.

Thanks – endless immeasurable thanks – to Karl Daly of Metis Ireland for making this gig happen; to Dolans Pub for hosting the occasion; to all the artists who gave their time and talents and to everyone who came out to support Pieta House and Limerick Suicide Watch; to Dan Murphy and Dermot Sheedy of Hermitage Green, Nile St. James and Cein Daly for sharing a stage with me; and Noel Hogan of The Cranberries for writing such an epic tune, giving his time, and allowing us to perform it on a great night full of great intentions for a great cause.

I love Limerick, and music.

HO HO HO… it’s “Angela’s Christmas” (UPDATED)

December 24, 2017  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

H-1 before the Irish TV premiere of the animated short film “Angela’s Christmas” featuring a brand new song recorded last month by Dolores O’Riordan as revealed on The Cranberries Twitter, Facebook and Instagram 2 days ago.

Facebook post

For those outside of Ireland, you can watch RTE One on FirstOneTV by clicking here, the link might work worldwide (no garantee!!). Let’s hope many of you will record and share for all those who can’t access/watch or just in case there’s no replay nor OST available afterwards.
See you after the broadcast later today/tonight for a brief recap!


UPDATE – 9:00 PM (UTC)

The film aired 10 minutes earlier than scheduled.

This is the story of a little girl named Angela who, on Xmas Eve 1914, “steals” Baby Jesus from the Nativity Scene in a cold church in Limerick because she thought he was cold and wanted to warm him home… and eventually bring him back.

Baby Jesus being stolen

Back to church

At home Angela sings a few lines of the song simply called “Angela’s Song”. Obviously this is Angela’s voice (Lucy O’Connell) singing these few lines, not Dolores’.
You can hear Dolores singing the (full?) song during the end credits. It’s approximately 1 minute long. It’s interesting to notice that Dolores only performed the song and did not write it as it’s written and produced by Darren Hendley.

irishsoul just shared it on Vimeo, many thanks to her.
Happy Christmas!

“Angela’s Song” performed by Dolores O’Riordan

Rest with me
We’ll be warm and free to dream
Of all the things yet to come
For you my little one

Lay with me
Let us sing a sweet melody
Of all the things yet to come
For you my little one

Look up high and see
All the stars above you and me 
They shine a light on all the things to come
For you my little one

A message from Dolores

December 20, 2017  |  5 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

Earlier today or very late at night yesterday in the USA (if she’s still in NYC), Dolores posted a brand new message both on The Cranberries Facebook and Twitter:

Hi All, Dolores here. Feeling good! I did my first bit of gigging in months at the weekend, performed a few songs at the Billboard annual staff holiday party in New York with the house band. Really enjoyed it! Happy Christmas to all our fans!! Xo

“Illusion” a new unreleased track by D.A.R.K. (UPDATED)

December 18, 2017  |  12 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K.

An unreleased track by D.A.R.K. has been shared on Soundcloud 25 days ago under the username JETLAG.NYC along with a brand new photo of Dolores holding a guitar. Thanks to the Facebook page of Dolores O’Riordan Spain for finding this gem as it seems that D.A.R.K. posted it without saying.

The track is called “Track 47 Illusion”
Is this an old demo song not selected to appear on debut album “Science Agrees” or is it a brand new one from a recent work. No one has the answer for now but the second option might be very possible.

lyrics tentative:

4, 3, 2, 1
4, 3, 2, 1
This is a story of failure and glory

Based in town in the South in 1980
Where should I begin
Please come in
Where were you lately
He said with a smile
In a while
It’s an illusion
It’s all an illusion
This is my conclusion for now

 

uh, uh

 

I remember the crowd
They were loud and it was something
When you took control of my soul
Then it was nothing
It’s all an illusion
This is my confusion
It’s all an illusion
This is my confusion

 

(OK that’s the idea)


UPDATE 3:15 PM (UTC)

The track has just been removed!!

In the series guess the next color, the album “No Need To Argue” will be reissued on GREEN VINYL on 16 February 2018 still by the same label, Plain Recordings.

As you all remember, the label already reissued the album 4 times (180 grams, cranberry, plum and turquoise) these last 2 years.

This new reissue will be limited to 660 units (666 would have been a bit more rock n’ roll)
